I could certainly have libdbi upgraded to 0.9 in Debian unstable, if

Concerning the time_t issue, I could carry a Debian-specific patch if
that change was not modifying the ABI (but I guess it does on 32-bit
archs). And anyways that would not fix the issue for other GNU/Linux
distributions. I could however add my voice to convince libdbi
developers. Is there a bug report to track this issue?
